About Changing Pathways

Changing Pathways is a place-based domestic abuse support charity that has been supporting survivors and their children in South Essex and Thurrock for over forty years. We have recently expanded to include services in Brentwood, Epping Forest and Harlow.

We provide free and confidential services for people who are currently experiencing, or have previously experienced, domestic abuse and other forms of inter-personal violence including stalking, harassment, ‘honour-based’ abuse and forced marriage. We focus on listening to survivors; together we decide the support required to enable them to take their first step on a pathway to rebuilding their lives.

You will be joining a team of committed and inspiring individuals whose dedication has affected the lives of thousands of women and children in Essex.
